We warmly invite you to mark your calendars, and to bring your inquiring minds to the 7th Annual Buddhist Summer School, to be hosted at Nyima Tashi, Auckland between 22nd February to 25th February 2019.

In disseminating Buddhist teachings in the West, Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche actively engaged in integrative dialogue with scientists, psychologists, artists and philosophers. Rinpoche was known for his remarkable ability to preserve the heart and profundity of Buddhist teachings, while opening minds to the ways Dharma can bring illumination and wisdom to the nuances of modern knowledge, dispositions and lifestyles.

In continuing Rinpoche’s commitment to vibrant teachings for our times, this 7th Annual Buddhist Summer School brings together distinguished Buddhist scholars, teachers and philosophers from the traditions of Theravada, Zen and Tibetan Buddhism.

Panel of summer school teachers for 2019:
Traleg Khandro
Traleg Khandro, long-time student and wife to the late Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX, is the President of E-Vam Buddhist Institute USA, and the Director of Rinpoche’s publishing arm Shogam Publications.

Khandro studied Buddhism under Traleg Rinpoche’s guidance for 30 years and has undertaken numerous long meditation retreats. At Rinpoche’s request Khandro also received traditional LuJong (Tibetan Yoga) training and is a qualified Hatha Yoga instructor. Khandro gives teachings on Buddhism and LuJong in Australia, New Zealand, U.K.,Europe, United States and South East Asia. Khandro has a degree in Psychology.

Doko Hatchett
Doko Hatchett (Doko-san) was born in 1970 and is the Abbot of Dochu-an and Shumpu-an Zen Hermitages in Northern NSW Australia, where he trains monastics, lay disciples, and lay trainees. He is also the guiding teacher of Little Zen Sangha, Hobart Australia. In 1989 while recovering from a brain aneurysm, he was introduced to Zen by a friend and began to do some zazen instead of thinking so much.

A few years later in 1991, Doko met Master Hogen Yamahata, Dharma heir to Master Tangen Harada of Bukkokuji. Doko became a monk with Hogen-san in 1994 and received Dharma-heir transmission to teach in 2008. In January 2009 he was granted full transmission as a successor and new ancestor in the lineage. He lives in Mullumbimby NSW with his wife, disciples, and three children.

Anthony Norrie
Anthony Norrie has worked as an Osteopath for 30 years, trained in England, America and Australia , with a particular interest in the field of Cranial Osteopathic Paediatrics.

These journeys and the need to provide appropriate training in OCF in Australasia prompted the establishment of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation of Australia and New Zealand (SCTF of ANZ) of which Anthony was a founding member and within which he still continues to teach. His Dharma experience has signficantly enriched and influenced both his clinical practise and personal life.

Fay Clark
Fay Clark has been a student of Traleg Rinpoche since 2006 and during this time has been an integral part of the Nyima Tashi sangha. She is also a student of Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche. She currently works in Auckland as a natural therapeutics practitioner.
